Benefits of L-theanine

Studies have also shown L-theanine can also improve the body's immune system, reduce inflammation, and help folks with high blood pressure.

L-theanine works great when combined together magnesium glycinate to promote vivid dreaming and deep REM sleep.

Especially those diagnosed with ADHD and ADD. L-theanine is known to help those with attention disorders to calm their nerves and think more clearly.

Getting L-theanine through Diet

If you're looking to get L-theanine through diet black and green tea are great ways to absorb L-theanine.

Tea has flavonoid antioxidants in addition to l-theanine. It's a reason why tea gives you the boost of caffeine without the jitters and crash of a cup of coffee.

If you're not a tea drinker you could also supplement l-theanine by taking the powder or a pill.
